- Bussmann, J. D., & Bond, J. D. (2015). Information Literacy in Mathematics Undergraduate Education: Where Does It Stand Today? Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 81, DOI:10.5062/F4WM1BD8 http://www.istl.org/15-summer/refereed2.html
- Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL). (2015). Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. Retrieved from http://www.ala.org/acrl/standards/ilframework
Questions to be discussed include:
- How have you been most successful in teaching information literacy for math students?
- How have you been most challenged?
- Have you made use of the new information literacy framework in your instruction to math students? Have you thought about how to make use of it? Which of the threshold concepts seem most relevant to math students?
The discussion is in Adobe Connect: go to http://ala.adobeconnect.com/r9d5u9fcgv9/
